This made a great Autumn comfort meal. I used Veggie Burger for the ground beef which lowered the sat fat content a *lot* but still tasted great. I made the full recipe to have leftovers as this type of casserole is always even better a day or two later. I never did get the cheese to brown bur it was bubbling and that was good enough for me as I didn't want it to dry out. Would certainly make this again.
This was VERY MUCH ENJOYED at my house tonight. All the flavors meld together so great. My little family of three ate a 9x13 pan- full!! Thanks so much!! Made for Xtra Hot Dishes of ZWT6.
